As a part of les Invalides, this royal chapel was completed in 1708,
inspired by St. Peter's Basilica in Rome.
The interior of the dome was painted by Charles de La Fosse with a Baroque illusion of space seen from below.

The dome can be seen from all over Paris, but I saw it for the first time two weeks ago.

What an opulent and stunning sight.
